Wikipedia:WikiProject Brazil

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bem-vindo to WikiProject Brazil! We are a group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Brazil, its people, culture, and history. This page and its subpages contain resources for improving the coverage of Brazil-related topics and collaborating with other Wikipedians.

If you would like to help, we encourage you to add your username to the participants page.

Scope[edit]

The project is dedicated to improving articles and coverage related to Brazil in a fair and accurate manner, with an emphasis on subjects with national significance. Editors are encouraged to participate in the topic-specific task forces.

As of 29 February 2024, there are 40,864 articles within the scope of WikiProject Brazil, of which 53 are featured and 80 are good articles. This makes up 0.6% of the articles on Wikipedia, 0.49% of all featured articles and lists, and 0.2% of all good articles. Including non-article pages, such as talk pages, redirects, categories, etcetera, there are 113,182 pages in the project.

A monthly top 1000 list of Brazil-related popular articles is available at Wikipedia:WikiProject Brazil/Popular pages.

Outside of scope[edit]

Often articles will have some connection to Brazil, but would still be considered outside the scope of WikiProject Brazil. Examples include biographical articles about Brazilian nationals whose life or career is mostly outside of Brazil or subjects of a more international scope or scientific nature, such as:

  • plants and animals,
  • geological features,
  • products or brands manufactured or distributed in Brazil by multinational corporations, etc.

The goal of this WikiProject is not to categorize every article that has anything at all to do with Brazil. There are often more appropriate WikiProjects for an article when the subject is not obviously related to Brazil, so we encourage you carefully consider which articles truly align with the goal of this project.

Goals[edit]

  1. Improve all Top Importance Brazil Articles to Good Article status at a minimum. Current progress: 10 out of 182 meet this criteria.[a]
  2. Maintain and expand templates, lists, portals, and categories in a manner that helps users browse the articles that fall under this project's scope.
  3. Organize this project page.
  4. Serve as the central point of discussion for collaboration related to Brazil and foster increased cooperation between editors in order to meet the other goals.
  5. Create the foremost reliable and accurate free-content encyclopedia of Brazil in the English language.
